Poetry Month Day 22: Pooped pup

April 22, 2021

Dog is crashed beneath my feet
but of course, that’s only
after a long walk,
a nice fat meal
some whining
and then
plop

Slice of Life 2021 Day 5: Throw a Girl a Bone

March 5, 2021

Today marks Day 5 of the Slice of Life challenge. Join me as I work to write every day in March – and hopefully beyond!

Dog bone gifted to me by a colleague who made my DAY

Sometimes
When the monkeys on the back
Outnumber
The feathers in the cap
Or when the proverbial
Whack-a-mole
Feels out of what
And we feel
Unseen
Unheard
Alone
Adrift
Someone tosses us
A wide-ribboned line
To remind us that
Yes
We are still tethered
Bound
Tied
IntoAmongWith
One another

I’m not the only one whose day was made!
